PETITION: SAY NO TO NEW PROVINCIAL SURTAX ON PROPERTY
WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, strongly oppose the new Provincial Surtax
on property (School Tax) as it is completely unfair, arbitrary and
WE DEMAND THAT YOU REPEAL THIS POORLY CONCEIVED,
UNFAIR, ARBITRARY AND COUNTERPRODUCTIVE TAX
The tax is a shameful tax grab to extract money from a vulnerable
minority, a poorly selected group of homeowners, on the pretext that
they are somehow more fortunate than others, but with total disregard to
their incomes, financial circumstances or ability to pay.
The announced tax rates amount to thousands and tens of thousands of
dollars per year per household in cash obligations imposed by surprise
on an unsuspecting public. Many of those victimized by it are seniors
with no prospect of earning income and their savings will be eroded.
Many other victims of the tax will be financially burdened beyond their
means and will be unable to service their mortgages. Many will be
forced to leave their homes and neighbourhoods.
This tax does nothing to improve housing supply and nothing to improve
affordability. It is likely to make home ownership and renting less
affordable. Only developers, the wealthy and foreigners will be able to
afford to own.
The tax will cause entrepreneurs, high value employees and business
owners, to leave the Province for jurisdictions where they can live with
housing taxes that are less oppressive.
REPEAL THIS TAX!
